Thanks for the meridian shots.

The further you go forward from that point the wider your usable beta
5D and 10.5 shaved
for 3shots beta 60° (120°angle of view) 11,2mm from the lens vertex
for 4shots beta 45° (90° angle of view) 14,2mm from the lens vertex
Not that this is of utterly importance shooting free handed or on a
monopod, but its a good to have if you decide to mount your head on a
tripod rotator or other indexed device for long exposures or closeup panos
like this one:
Sure could have used your spike attachment though, as this one was done in
a pendullum fashion kind of way, by holding the inverted monopod loosely
between finger and thumb (the OK loop!) and maintain 2 inches distance
from the straw to the lens, turn with the other hand and release Luca
style (remote release between the teeth

with this kind of stuff.... I love it...and proud to be one.

- I've been doing some more work on my homemade pano head.
This may be a little bit confusing to most people looking at it for the
Is it right side up or upside down? Yes it is, well that is it works
When I get back home next week I will finish a few little things that
are left to be done, put it through some test and show off just what
this thing can do.
- It certainly looks interesting!
a green surgical sheet as background somehow seems more appropriate for
this fright-inducing 'device' ; )
